Prevent a Turkey Fryer Fire
Thanksgiving is the peak day for home cooking fires and when you fry foods, you increase the risk of a cooking fire
Keep in in mind the potential dangers of deep frying a turkey:
Turkey fryers can easily tip over spilling hot oil across a large area. Use your turkey fryer only outdoors on a sturdy, level surface well away from things that can burn. Make sure to have a '3-foot kid- and pet-free zone' around your turkey fryer to protect against burn injuries.
Take a moment to make sure you have working smoke detectors in your home before the start of the busy holiday season. Contact the Providence Fire Department Fire Prevention Division if you have any questions or concerns at (401) 243-6050.
